Average interview process. Wish it was easier. There were 3 steps - online, phone, face to face. If I were to receive another offer from a different company I would have taken it. Hands down

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Commonwealth Bank of Australia (Sydney (Australia)).

    Interview

    CBA were super efficient.. all in all a quick process given the number of interview stages. Initial pre-screening questions were pretty standard. Hardest part for me was the group case study - trying to work with other candidates with assessors on your back.

    Apply online - resume, academic transcript, cover letter, written questions (e.g. why Commbank? Why your specified service line?) etc.

    Online psychometric testing - verbal, cognitive, numerical, workplace scenarios (values/fit) etc

    Prerecorded Video Interview - 6-7 questions. The questions were basic company related, service line, behavioural and based on your university studies. Make sure you know the service line/business area well (including current market events etc).

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Commonwealth Bank of Australia.

    Interview

    Video interview was extremely short (strict 2 minute limit), although the formatting was friendly and approachable with pre-recorded videos. The online assessments were from the company SHL and quite classic, with numerical reasoning, behavioural and numerical testing being assessed. For the video interview there were a total of 7 questions, the first two being incredibly easy.

    Interview process was okay. First apply online, then do an online assessment. The next step is a digital interview meaning you have to record yourself answering questions. After that, there is further assessment.
